The famous Ghanaian dancing pallbearers, now officially known as the Otafrij Dancing Pallbearers, performed at the funeral of Nana Agyei Sikapa.
Despite Media Journalist, Nana Agyei Sikapa who passed on in June 2020 following a long term illness was given his last respect at a burial ceremony on Saturday, July 25, 2020.
According to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Ghanacelebrities.com the funeral was held at Achimota Mile 7, where sympathizers, loved ones and family gathered for the final rites and internment.
Watch the video below:
The famous pallbearers did not get dramatic during Nana Agyei Sikapa's burial ceremony as they were seen carrying the casket and walking peacefully to lay the fallen journalist to his final resting place.
In 2017, the dancing pallbearers went viral following BBC Africa's coverage of their flamboyant coffin-carrying dance moves, garnering millions of views.
Three years later and the group has experienced a second round of internet fame, with social media users adopting the troupe as a dark-humoured symbol of death in these COVID-19 times.
Since then, this is the first funeral that the pallbearers have been reported to have performed at.
In another interesting report, sensational Ghanaian comedian and musician, AY Poyoo has donated the very first pay he got from YouTube to an orphanage that has not been named.
In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official YouTube handle of the rising star, Poyoo indicates that it has always been his dream to give to the needy.
According to him, anytime he saw children in orphanages, he wished to be able to help them but did not have much to give, and therefore hoped that God would bless him one day to be able to lend a helping hand.
